Its been confirmed. What do you think?
It's out now, both the Single and the Music Video. Make sure you guys buy them from iTunes! The Music Video still isn't available to buy yet though!
UNLIKE MOST PEOPLE I LOVE THAT SMILE IS THE SECOND SINGLE!!!! ITS GREAT AND I CANT STOP LISTENING TO IT(: I CANT WAIT FOR THE VIDEO.!!!!!! LOVE THE NEW ALBUM..YOUR ROCK
i think its cool.....
oops.. i meant on jimmy kimmel.
i'm not sure about this because avril performed push on chelsea lately.
If Everybody Hurts was the third single, it would be amazing <3333
I think Smile is a fun, dancy song that will do well on the charts. I think it's a really good choice for a second single.
I like Smile as a second single. And then Avril can slow down and might do Wish You Were Here as a third single!
@UncleBob Which sources??
@UncleBob I think it has, because I saw a GL commercial and it said featuring the singles What The Hell and Smile :L
I think Wish You Were Here would be better as 2nd single than Smile...
WYWH the Best
I kind of noticed that both Push and Wish you were here sounds much better live than Smile. At least on the Walmart Souncheck, where Smile sound a bit weird. Exp at the "you said hey...." part
Smile is one of my faves, so I think it's ok. Hope next single would be Wish You Were Here, Push, Stop Standing There, or Everybody Hurts.
Maybe Stop standing there will be the 3rd single
I like Smile, I think it's a good and catchy song, one of my favourites but it would be nice to have something not so TBDT and WTH like Wish You Were Here or Push. But I expect the record label just wanted her to release Smile as a single because it's more pop and will sell more APPARENTLY.
i really wish we had a quote option lol anywho i'm replying to what Zara said:
"Miss Independant: @Rachel: I don't agree. Sk8er boi showed who Avril was as a person back then. She was a young skater with a not so girly style. Now she's more mature, and every song on the album except WTH and Smile are very deep. Those two songs are more like TBDT while all the other ones has a true "Let Go sound". That's why I disagree about Smile being the next single"
and i agree!
I'm sorry, I just don't see Smile as a hit. I wish the first single had been Stop Standing There. What the Hell doesn't do it for me. It's not really fun to sing along to, and it doesn't get my body moving. SST on the other hand makes my head bob and my toes tap!! Plus, it doesn't really sound much like anything Avril's ever done. I bet it would have made more buzz than WTH did.
Sigh. Who knows what might have been?
Oh, and I'm also hoping for Everybody Hurts, or Remember When. Wish You Were Here would also be OK.
SO MUCH HIT POTENTIAL on this album if they just make the right choices! I hope Smile and Push are hits, but I really don't think they will be. -sniff-
I really hope that "Wish you were here" will be the 3rd single anyway. I want a video for that song
Smile? There are absolutely improves songs on the album. But why not, I give one's blessing to her
I think Smile is a great song, but I agree with those who already said that it doesn't show the other side of the album. I think it should be Everybody Hurts, Push or Wish You Were Here.I think these song are a good mix of the album style incl. WTH.
Ok it's not my fav song i'd prefer it to have been everybody hurts or wish you were here.
I hope they can censor it on the radio xD
@Rachel: I don't agree. Sk8er boi showed who Avril was as a person back then. She was a young skater with a not so girly style. Now she's more mature, and every song on the album except WTH and Smile are very deep. Those two songs are more like TBDT while all the other ones has a true "Let Go sound". That's why I disagree about Smile being the next single
@Ashleyyy Well you never know, Push, Everybody hurts or Wish you were here may be the 3rd and 4th single
ehhh. i agree with everyone that said 'smile' shouldnt be. i was hoping for "wish you were here", "everybody hurts" or "push"
@MissIndependent But thinking back to other albums and singles, Sk8er Boi didn't really showcase what album Let Go was...
I agree with Ants319. WTH was a fun lead single but for the 2nd one I wish she'd chosed something that shows what kind of sound this album really has. 'Wish you were here' would be my personal choice since it's on the top-lists.
@Ants319 Yuuup, I would of liked Wish You Were Here to be the next single. But I like Smile, its a good song
I would of prefered a song that like shows the otherside of the album, something like wish you were here or something.
I think this song is great! like the rest of them.
Here's a segment from Avril's official Bio page:
"Except for the anthemic first single, the irresistibly feisty “What The Hell” and “Smile,” which create a perfect bridge from her previous work, the remainder of Goodbye Lullaby finds Lavigne exploring what it means to push through the tough times and emerge stronger for it — a theme apparent on songs like “Everybody Hurts,” “Push,” “Remember When,” and “Wish You Were Here.” "
I get the bridge purpose, at least one anyway, but I wonder if some will think GL is TBDT Part 2 after hearing/seeing WTH and Smile (?). TBDT was great in it's own respect.
I'm so happy Avril keeps pointing out in interviews that this album (aside from WTH) is raw, honest, and stripped down and has lots of piano, strings, and acoustic guitar. That allows the focus to be more on Avril's amazing voice and deep heart-felt emotions.
Avril's Bio really sums things up nicely for GL as well as who she is.
